Here my soul drifting

Up all night waiting

Then you came

Behind the sheer curtain

Saw your shadow passed by.


I sat and watched

As you walked by

Your scent lingers

In the dark I sniffed

Quivering and heart throbbing.


My eyes grew dim

As you kissed my cheek

I breathed rushing

Without knowing

How much my heart can bear.

In perfect light my soul will arise...soon, soon!

You whispered

“I love you”

But my lips have failed

To say, “I love you too”

Deaf as a post I was.


I gazed on the dim light

That flickers through

Contented to feel you

And then you fade away

Swiftly like the gusting breeze.


Sweet peace my soul hopes

I'll wait for your return

In this little nook of the house

Where my heart is set at rest

Kindled by the fireside.

Light is good from whatever lamp it shines. ~Unknown

      Your words of loss and longing were so eloquent and the pictures were eloquent without words. It all worked together to evoke a mood.

      I love your poem, so beautifully expressed. Your photos helped to add to the feeling of your words, as if we were right there too. The fireside is so inviting and cozy. I did not know that was Michael Jackson's last song.

      Very crispy lines that reflect a sense of loss but with a vision of hope. Never feel alone as the intense feelings within demand you to be optimistic to enjoy whatever comes your way. Beautiful lines Cris. Thanks for sharing.

      ahorseback: Dear Ed my friend from cyberspace, thank you. I'll tell you a secret...red eye flights are my favorites. Why? Because at night is when I see all the stars in the sky, I feel much closer to the BIG GUY and most importantly, the passengers are all quiet--snoozing. ZZZzzzz!!! Yet, I know, I am not alone. Cheers!

      Love from the sky~
